Cute & Cheap Way to Display Kids’ Artwork

SAVE MONEY.  SAVE SPACE.

Is your refrigerator plastered with your kiddos’ artwork?  Ours sure was, which meant you could hardly tell what color our fridge was since we also keep all of our friends’ Christmas pictures up throughout the year.  On top of that, the bottom of the fridge is also crowded with alphabet magnets!  I’m sure some people get a headache just looking at our fridge!

I decided it was time to reclaim some of the fridge space so I could actually post a party invitation when we got one.  That’s when I thought up this SUPER EASY way to display kids’ artwork.  It’s not only easy, but cheap and very cute!

Supplies:
  • hot glue gun
  • clothespins
  • wooden decals (I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby when they were 1/2 off $.67 each)
  • Command adhesives
Game Plan:

1.  Hot glue a clothespin to the back of a wooden decal

If the clothespin was showing because of the shape of the decal, I angled it so the least amount of clothespin would show.  This is a personal preference of mine.  They still stuck to the Command adhesive fine.

2.  Stick a Command adhesive to the door or place you would like the artwork hanger to be.

I chose to make Rylan’s closet doors into an artwork display because it was a great blank canvas!
